Garden State Sound
with Evan Toth

All jokes aside, New Jersey is a pretty great place. While it has a lot to offer as a state, it also has a rich musical history of which many people remain unaware. Everyone knows Sinatra and The Boss, but there’s much more.

Tune in to Garden State Sound with Evan Toth to explore the diverse music with connections to New Jersey. You’ll hear in-depth interviews with some of Jersey’s best music makers and have the opportunity win tickets to some of the best concerts in the state.

“Let’s begin at the end: after all is said and done, Joe Deninzon is a musician’s musician. He’s out there, working, playing, doing his thing. He’s carrying black nylon bags full of equipment around the country in the rain and in the cold—probably tonight somewhere. And after the evening’s gig ends, he comes home to his family who has probably already been asleep for hours. It’s not an easy life, that of a professional musician, it’s really more of a calling.

No doubt that Joe has been around and he appears to restlessly searching—and thinking about—the next move, the next angle. Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, Joe and his classically trained parents moved to Cleveland when he was only four. After living in New York City in his 20s, he now calls Bergen County, NJ his home. He’s a violinist, a singer, a bandleader with Stratospheerius, a songwriter, an arranger: the guy seemingly does it all. He plays progressive rock, jazz, classical, whatever, you name it, he’ll bang it out.

Sure, electric violin; why not? But, so much more. Tune in to this edition of “Garden State Sound” to hear where Joe was, where he is, and where he’s going. Like us, Joe’s not bound by genres and scenes; he’s out there to make music and hone his skill as an exceptional musician. He’s one of us. You know what I mean? Leave on the light for him.” —EZT
